This paper introduces a new family of data center resource optimization metrics designated collectively as Data Center Productivity (DCP) metrics and presents the first derivative metric within this family called Data Center energy Productivity (DCeP). The DCeP metric provides a unique analytical tool that may be used to track the overall work product of a data center per unit of energy expended to produce this work. While DCeP in its current form is only applicable to improvements in a single data center, it is hoped that this work will provide a framework to develop similar metrics for comparing across different data centers.
